Today, we filmed a speech by the marvellous Mo Marsh, the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, at the Mayor's Parlour.

As you may recall, Disability Pride Brighton is happening on the same day as Disability Pride New York City and Disability Pride Italia.

All the mayors are sending a video of best wishes to each other which I will upload on here shortly.

Mo is so warm and welcoming and it was a pleasure to spend time with her.

Heartventure is all about supporting adults with learning disabilities to meet and socialise in a safe and secure environment. The company is run by Carol Wakeford, Daniel Wakeford's mum, as well as her husband Barry Wakeford and Diane Sharkey.

Heartventure hosts one or two events a month in Brighton and Hove, including karaoke, quiz nights and disco evenings. The video I shared a couple of days ago is of my daughter, Charlie, dancing away at the Heartventure Valentine's Ball, where she had one of the best times she has ever had - she couldn't stop smiling for days. I will share the video again below.

I can thoroughly recommend Heartventure as it is run by such caring people. Please check out their website.

We are thrilled to announce that the fabulous and famous Daniel Wakeford (star of The Undateables) will be performing for us at Disability Pride Brighton. Daniel is well known for appearing in several episodes of this wonderful series (my daughter, Charlie's, favourite programme) and has also appeared on This Morning with his mum, Carol, who runs HeartVenture, an organisation which connects adults with learning disabilities through social events. (See above post.)

Daniel now has a career in music and has toured the UK, as well as having been Number 1 on Spotify! Well done, Daniel.
